Programming with Microsoft Visual Basic .NET

The goal of this course is to provide Microsoft Visual Basic Developers with the knowledge and skills needed to develop Microsoft .NET-based applications by using Visual Basic .NET. Visual Basic .NET is a significant upgrade to Visual Basic and incorporates many new features and framework goals of the .NET architecture. These changes will allow Visual Basic developers to create enterprise applications for the .NET Platform and to create more traditional Visual Basic applications that can take advantage of the enhancements to the language.

After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • List the major elements of the .NET Framework and describe some of the major enhancements to the new version of Visual Basic

  • Explain the basic concepts and terminology of object-oriented design specifically for Visual Basic .NET
  • Explain and use the basic concepts and terminology of object-oriented programming in Visual Basic .NET
  • Create applications by using Microsoft Windows Forms
  • Create Internet applications that use Web Forms and Web Services
  • Create applications that use ADO.NET
  • Create components in Visual Basic .NET
  • Set up and deploy various types of Visual Basic .NET-based applications
  • Prepare existing Visual Basic-based applications for upgrade to Visual Basic .NET

This course is intended primarily for developers who use Visual Basic 4.0 or later as their primary language, who use Microsoft technologies such as Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects (ADO) and Active Server Pages (ASP) to develop applications and who plan to use Visual Basic .NET for future application development.

Don't be Left Disappointed

The earlier you book the cheaper it is! That's our policy. The earlier you book a course online, the more likely the course is to run! We don't offer discounts for last minute bookings in fact quite the opposite. Book late and you'll end up paying the FULL price!!!

Late bookings mean we have to order extra manuals, which we have to pay express delivery charges for, additional food, that means our purchasing power is reduced, and reconfiguring rooms, which means extra time. Unfortunately all these unforeseen changes cost money which you end-up paying.

Just look how much you can save on our online listed prices the earlier you book!

  • 45 working days or more attracts an 8% reduction
  • Less than 45 working days = Full Price

Secure your place early and get a great reduction!

Early booking discounts apply to our publicly scheduled Microsoft Technical IT training courses held at our own premises. This discount will be applied to online booking(s) registrations only. Not to be used in conjunction with any other offer.
